Hy-Lite has expanded its specialty products category with the addition of the Barn-Lite system, composed of acrylic block grid doors on barn-door sliding hardware.

The doors have been imagined as interior privacy dividers for homes or commercial spaces. “Just imagine the ease of separating a large room into two smaller rooms simply by sliding the Barn-Lite door,” says Roger Murphy, president of Hy-Lite. “These doors instantly create a private space while allowing in the flow of light.”

The Barn-Lite system is available in Wave and Glacier-style acrylic blocks, which allow light to pass through but obscure views of the room or space behind them. Each door measures 38 inches wide by 83 inches tall and 1.5 inches deep, with 9 by 9-inch blocks arranged in a grid of four bocks across and nine blocks down. Architectural-grade vinyl frames for the door units are available in white and bronze finishes, and the full sliding door system is supported by steel overhead hardware, available in black satin.

“The popularity of barn-style doors has been on a steady rise in the U.S. for the past several years,” Murphy adds. “Whether used to separate a bathroom from a master bedroom or to close off conference space in an office, the Barn-Lite doors are an elegant and easy way to gain privacy.”

The acrylic block door panels may also be inserted into new and existing interior and exterior doors.
